Why Doesn't My New Tire Match the Old Ones?

The answer to that question could have a couple different answers, but the most common is that you may not have read the right size on your tires before ordering the new one. Learn how to read them correctly and never make that mistake again.

On the sidewall of the tire, you can find a series of three numbers; it should look something like this example: 225/60R17. Let's break it down using the same example; first, the 225/ tells you the width from sidewall to sidewall and is measured in millimeters. second number; 60 in this case, represents the ratio of sidewall height to width. And the third number (17) is the wheel diameter. This one has to the right because if it is wrong, there's no way you can use it with your existing wheels. A tire professional knows how to play with the other numbers to match up in an emergency.
